That is actually a little surprising. Usually more people identify as liberal. Especially now when the GOP is so unpopular, I would think that even more people would self-identify as liberal.

But I guess maybe that is only if the choice is between Liberal and Conservative. Maybe "Moderate" is eating up all the conservatives who are too embarrassed by their party to want to self-identify as "Conservative".

Hillary lost even though the Republican candidate is the worst President ever isn't really an insult against Dems. It means too many people thought voting in a bankrupt, fraudulent, reality-show con-artist was somehow a good idea.

I don't like Hillary so that doesn't bother me. I'm just also not stuoid enough to think she'd be a bigger embarrassment than the------------- game show host. The two sentiments arent mutually exclusive you know.

Yeah, right. Hillary had a ton of baggage, was well known for her lies, was always barely one step ahead of a scandal, was corporate owned, ran a shady foundation that filtered money from the Saudis and other, etc.. But that had nothing to do with her not getting elected.

Better run. She needs her other boot licked.

Republicans AFFIRMATIVELY decided that Trump was THE BEST THEIR PARTY COULD OFFER.

Democrats decided the same thing for Hillary (I have no problem saying she was the best our party could offer).

Then the country* decided that they preferred Trump (a racist) over Hillary (a strong woman).

I am not insulted by Hillary losing to Trump, regardless of whether he is a crappy person. I voted for a person I respect. I did not vote for Trump and the vast majority of Democrats didn't either. It was YOU and YOUR ILK who voted for that poor excuse for a human being. I cannot change how other people act. But I can point out what their actions say about them. And Republicans actions over the last 4 years say A LOT. I now know a lot more about them thanks to Donald Trump.

*actually not a majority of the country, just a majority of the electoral college.

SHe lost.

Whether Hillary won or not has zero to do with Trump's performance. He's done about as well as you'd expect a morally bankrupt serial liar and failure to perform.

My bet is enough people have seen it to matter. Only his ignorant base will stick with this level of incompetence.

And I wish I had dropped out of school in third grade.

You were one of the smart ones. There should have been more of you.

To augment your sentiment, I believe the Democrats were still heady after putting the first black man in the White House. So then they said, "We're also going to claim the first woman in the White House". I think that is one of the big reasons the party favored Hillary.

And had she won, they would have continued their streak and gone for the first gay president.

Identity politics is a bad idea, as the Dems should learn. People want the best, not the "first".

#34; Where to begin? Pretty much everything you state in #34 is wrong. HRC was the nominee because there was no fair primary process put in place by the DNC which had already decided at the highest levels several years earlier that they wanted her to be the candidate. She was the worst, least appealing Democratic national candidate of my lifetime. A pile of dung could have beaten her in the general election. In fact, a pile of dung did beat her in the general election.

How can you say I'm wrong, then say this? I agree. That's pretty much what I said, except I was more specific. Why did the DNC want Hillary? Because they wanted squatting rights on the first female president. Surely it wasn't because they wanted the first president to store state email on illegal servers, did they?

Biden = clinton far too closely.

Old white democrat ex-senator who already failed to get the democratic nomination in the past, who voted for the iraq war, who has fundraisers with bankers and promises to protect them, and who has a long history of being on the wrong side of issues before finally joining the right side.

Jesus christ is that not too close for comfort for you?

Trump won because he got the people who were sick of the corrupt system to actually come out and vote for a change. Dems aren't going to win those people over by promising to go back to the system they were sick of before trump came along.
